Pete Tong - Essential Decade 1990-2000

Free with the January 2000 issue of Mixmag magazine.
Picking the tracks for this CD was a nightmare. I had to condense 11 years of late nights and early mornings, lucky breaks and hard work into 74 minutes of music. But I think it's come out pretty well. There's a nod to the originators with Sagat's still fresh-sounding "Luvstuff" and Orbital bookending the whole thing. There are classic remixes from Armand Van Helden, Sasha, Roger Sanchez and Breeder. But most of all there are big, big tunes from System F, DJ Misjah, Sex-O-Sonique, JDS and Mighty Dub Katz. I hope it gives you a taste of what ffrr has been about for the last 11 years.
If you know these tunes, I hope it brings you as many good memories as I had when putting it together. If it doesn't, well thanks for looking through our closet. We've had a ball.
